So far so good - Thanks for the quick test fit Curtis.

Now if the international shipments actually go through without getting hung up in customs, I'll be a happy camper.

I received mine the other day and installed today. It fits really well and looks great! Thanks for your time and effort.
I was worried at first that it would get in the way of the throttle, but it has decent clearance too.
I included two picts after install: under dash and engine compartment.

Thanks for the feedback and great pics. Your firewall pic shows just how tight things are in there. I attempted to match the original hose geometry as close as I could possibly measure without a CMM.

I have USPS confirmation that 100% of the Domestic US shipments have arrived at their respective destinations. If you did not receive your order please let me know. I believe the three international orders 2 CN and 1 NL are in country now but I'm guessing USPS will loose track of them now that they are out of their control.

Good job Steve, I like how you were able to dull the shine on mine. They will look fine in the car.

Looks like were almost there friends. The 3 international orders cleared customs and are out for delivery.

If you have issues or concerns with your product, please PM me immediately so I can work the issue. "Silence is approval" is the rule I am following here. I am currently holding 3 hoses back to address any issues. If no one speaks up, I have a buyer (in wait) for those 3, and I will process their order.

Also, since the feedback has been good so far, I'm assuming the product design and quality is suitable for ongoing production and sales. Therefor to finish the final phase of this project, I have been in contact with a viable vendor to see if they are interested in supplying these in the future. There are about five'ish vendors on my list. I'll work through them in progression one at a time.


Warm Regards,
Steve

I now have USPS confirmation that 100% of the orders shipped have been delivered. So it looks like the international orders went through OK. If anyone is missing their stuff or is displeased with the product, please PM me immediately. Otherwise, I'm going to sell the remaining inventory and it will be very difficult to handle your issue after that. I don't want any unhappy campers when I'm finished up with this project.

Thank you so much Curtis. You have graciously offered your help and support (even financial) all along. I appreciated your encouraging words and enthusiasm.

And now for the teaser: The final phase of the project has begun. I have secured an agreement with a well known, high quality vendor ready, willing, an certainly able to make this product available in the future.

Steve
